The run series is suitable for runners of all abilities and ages, whether you’re an avid runner or lacing up your trainers for the first time.  That’s not all; runners, supporters and beach goers can come and join in the carnival-like atmosphere in the Festival Village.  Packed full of food, music, entertainment and activities, it’s the new way to spend your day at the beach.
